What People Are Saying About Dream Home Builders


My wife and I hired Mr. Chadworth Taniguchi to build our dream home in Kaneohe. We had no idea what we were getting into and were told by everyone we knew that during the time of all the planning and preparation of this project, my wife and I would probably get into quite a few arguments over all the stress. Mr. Taniguchi and his team made things so easy for us, that I don’t remember being overwhelmed at all.  He took control of planning every single detail and made sure that our wishes were implemented whenever possible. He kept us updated on the progress every step of the way. Mr. Taniguchi and his team made our dreams come true in just 4 months.  From demolition of the existing house to the handing over of the keys to our brand new 2 story home.  I was thoroughly impressed. Even more impressive was the fact that he said he could do it and he proved it.  Although our home was built rather quickly, quality was never sacrificed. Not a single corner cut. Mr. Taniguchi built our house as if it were for his own family. Every member of his team took so much pride in the work that thy did and it showed in the final product. We get nothing but compliments on our home from all of our friends, family and neighbors alike. I am so proud to send referrals to Mr. Taniguchi because I know that his work is worth its weight in gold. He is a good man with so much integrity. It goes far beyond what he does in his trade as well. With his busy schedule, he still makes the time to be an excellent professional and personal friend. We are a young family yet and as our family continues to grow, my wife and I would like our house to grow as well. In fact, we already have some ideas on what we would like to do. There is no other person that we trust more than Mr. Taniguchi to continue what he started. No question about it, we will hire him again. If he happens to be booked for a while, we will wait. I hope you can tell by this letter how much I respect and stand by this man. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. Take the time to examine his work and you will see what all of his satisfied customers already know.

CrowellsWe were finally ready to renovate our kitchen during 2014. We had waited a few years to do this and were excited to finally get it done. After a few weeks of research, we selected Chad Taniguchi and Dream Home Builders as our contractor.

From the very beginning, Chad and his staff were extremely accommodating and responsive to all of our questions and needs. Phone calls and emails were answered immediately, the schedule for the renovation was created quickly and the crew was efficient and very easy to work with. We got updates every day and we were pleased with the progress we saw at the end of each day when we got home from work. We also felt very confident that the crew was trustworthy and our home was safe in their hands.

Chad's staff helped us select appliances, color schemes, light and plumbing fixtures and gave us really good feedback on our ideas. We found this to be very helpful as we had never done a renovation before. We had an issue with two kitchen windows. Chad went beyond the call and helped us work with the vendor until the window replacements were done. He is committed to superior customer service and aspires for all of his customers to be satisfied.

We truly feel that we now have our "dream" kitchen. We couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out. Dream Home Builders did a wonderful job....when they do a job, it's done right. This is important to any home owner.

Dream Home Builders recently completed a renovation of our rental unit and, next year, we will be calling Chad and his crew when we renovate our bathrooms. We would call no one else.

We recently had our house in Mililani Mauka extended to include a master-size bedroom, bathroom, walk-in closet, and wet bar. Chad was in charge and coordinated the entire job to our greatest satisfaction. He was very knowledgable, professional, and trust-worthy. We felt very comfortable talking with him about our needs. He and his crew always did their work with minimal inconvenience to us, the homeowner. That was important to us since we were still living in the house while all the work was being done.

The finished product shows quality workmanship and we are very pleased. Chad is a person of integrity and professionalism.

A couple of years ago, I had a dream of extending our home. My husband allowed me the freedom of deciding how this extension would look like. After many, many sketches, we finally agreed that we were ready to make the big step of starting to make this dream a reality.
We had no idea who our contractor would be.  However, while reading our local “Ka Nu Pepa,” I noticed an ad. When I called to inquire, Mr. Chad Taniguchi made time in his busy schedule to meet with us that day. We were so pleased with his honesty and knowledge that without hesitation, we asked that he become our General Contractor for our extension project. Since it was a “turn-key” type situation, we didn't have to worry about looking for individual people to do the various jobs. Every step of the way, Mr. Taniguchi answered all our questions and provided helpful suggestions, which we incorporated into our dream.

After the completion of our new extension, (which included two good-sized bedrooms, a bathroom with a bigger than normal shower, a small living room, a loft over the stairs), we were so pleased with the fine workmanship that was done that we asked Mr. Taniguchi and his team to take on our two downstairs bathroom renovation project. They did, and now we are enjoying our dream come true. Our only regret is that, looking back, we wished we could have done these projects years earlier. Since then, we have received many compliments on our addition and bathroom projects that many people have asked for the name of the contractor, which we happily and highly recommend.

Chad is very knowledgible in his field, has a good eye for detail and perfection, and is a very honest person.  He and his team represents his company name well...showing quality in their workmanship! If we ever had the need to do another renovation, we would call him without hesitation!

Chad Taniguchi has been our general contractor for work on our home in Mililani. The project was started in late 2006 and was completed in early 2007. We asked Mr. Taniguchi to build an addition to our existing home. The addition was more than 600 square feet and consisted of the demolition of our existing master bath and bedroom and the entire “end” of our existing home, then construction of a new master bath, master bedroom, a large study and a patio.
That was the first time we have engaged in such a large project and we are greatful to Mr. Taniguchi for helping us throughout the entire project, from having the plans drawn to coordinating finishing touches on our home. Mr. Taniguchi even helped us when we asked to adjust our original contract with him to include repair to some of the siding on our existing home, replacing a door and even removing an old air conditioner. The project was completed to the exact specifications, better than code, and to our satisfaction.
Throughout the project, Mr. Taniguchi was extremely professional, efficient and courteous. We were anxious about the project since we had no experience with such a major undertaking however Mr. Taniguchi was most reassuring and addressed all of our questions every step of the way whenever we asked. He kept in close contact with us by telephone, email and in person throughout the project.
We are extremely pleased with Chad Taniguchi’s performance as our general contractor. We would absolutely ask him to help us with any project we may have in the future and will most certainly recommend his services to everyone we know. Thanks to Chad Taniguchi, we now have our Dream Home.

We would like to offer our testimonial on the work performed by Dream Home Builders in renovation our townhouse in Hillside Terrace on Aiea.

From the beginning, Chad Taniguchi (the owner) was very responsive to our many questions seeking his advise in making some decisions on our kitchen “extreme” make-over. We decided eventually to remove two walls and open up our kitchen to flow into the dining and living rooms. Chad was very helpful in guiding us through this process with many suggestions for solving problems.

As the work began, Dream Home Builders proved to be a first-rate professional construction company. Being a family operated, Sinclair (Chad’s dad) was always willing to answer our questions and helped lead the team of workers. Within four hours, everything was removed from our old kitchen and the installation of the new kitchen was underway. The work was done neatly, with a lot of care, as if the crew were working on their place. Chad was available everyday to answer questions and inform us of the upcoming schedule. The work was coordinated well with the plumbing and electrical sub-contractors who all worked together to complete our project in an efficient manner. It couldn’t have turned out any better than it did. We love our new kitchen “island” and we eat there every day, just as Chad said we would! The finished product is beautiful, and the credit goes to Dream Home Builders for making it a reality.

After the positive experience with our kitchen renovation, we had Dream Home Builders back to renovate our two upper level bathrooms and three bedrooms. Again, everything was done neatly, carefully, and with quality workmanship right on schedule. We appreciate our new step-in shower with built-in seat and two grab bars, along with the double sinks in our master bath. We couldn’t be happier!

We heartily recomend Chad & Michelle Taniguchi’s company, Dream Home Builders, for their quality workmanship and friendly, customer-first attitude.

We recently purchased our home in Mililani Mauka and instantly knew that it was lacking a covered lanai and second lever deck to take advantage of our perimeter views. We anticipated having to separately hire an architect, contractor, and sub-contractors. What started out as an overwhelming task resulted in an AMAZING experience. This company is definitely “one-stop shopping.” They take care of everything that’s required from start to finish, including association and building department approvals. Additionally, the dread of living in a “construction zone” never materialized. At the end of each day, everything was cleaned up and therefore, we realized very little inconvenience. Chad estimated the completion time of the project as well as the time lines of each phase and finished right on time. The quality and attention to detail of their work speaks for itself. The entire project looks like it was original to the home, which was our intent, and confirmed by our friends who have visited. If we didn’t tell them it was new, they would never have known!

With the help of Chad Taniguchi and his Your Dream Home Builders team, we now have two beautiful “outdoor spaces” and even better views than we realized we had.

We have additional renovation projects to be done and My Dream Home Builders WILL definately be our CONTRACTOR OF CHOICE.

I have lived in Waikele, Hawaii for 11 years. As much as I enjoyed living in Hawaii, it was time for me to move closer to where my daughter in California lived. This meant that I would have to sell my home in Waikele in a much slower real estate market. My friend and neighbor, a contractor, recommended that I contact Dream Home Builders, Inc. to renovate and update my home. He gave Dream Home Builders, Inc. many positive reviews for their workmanship and service. I have two goals in mind when I decided to update my home; one I needed to sell my home at a fair price and within a reasonable amount of time and secondly, if my home did not sell, I wanted to enjoy living in a beautifully renovated home.

After my initial consultation with Dream Home Builders, Inc., I felt very comfortable.  We were able to discuss my needs and concerns, I was confident they would be able to help me achieve my goals. Dream Home Builders, Inc. made it a lot easier for me to move forward by having candid discussions regarding my ideas. I have been very pleased with the end result. My updated bathrooms, flooring, and fixtures look absolutely beautiful. The scheduling went as planned. All of Dream Home Builders, Inc.’s employees were punctual, thoughtful, neat, and respectful during the entire process.

I am very pleased with my finished home and have received many compliments from friends and neighbors. My home of 11 years has a beautiful face lift. There were 3 homes exactly like my home on the market for sale in close proximity to where my home is located but my newly renovated home sold in less than 30 days. The other homes are still on the market today. The new owner is extremely happy with his new home.

I thank Chad, Sharon, Justin, Chris, and Ed from Dream Home Builders, Inc. for all of their expertise and professionalism.

Having our home renovation done by the team at Dream Home Builders, Inc. was a “dream all the way through”! From the beginning to end, Chad and company provided us with value and delivered a product that exceeded our expectations!  We are more than happy with our home now! We’re proud of our home and everyone who visits can’t believe the change and how fast and carefree our renovation experience went! Dream Home Builders took care of all the sub-contracting, and believe me, that is usually a tremendous concern that impacts how smoothly the projects go! Our house is truly a home we love! Thank you Dream Home Builders!

Selecting the right Contractor who understood the visions of our plans to demolish, our 50’s home and rebuild a new multi-generation home takes time.

When we met with Chad Taniguchi of Dream Home Builders, we appreciated how he understood our vision of the home we hoped to build. He listened, communicated well, and recommended suggestions. Chad is familiar with the construction industry, resources, and services available in the community.

Chad and the Dream Home Builders staff managed and were always readily available to answer any questions or concerns we had. They took care of everything. They also kept us updated on what was happening on a daily basis with an online timeline of the construction and what was being/going to be accomplished.

On the completion of our home, we had a final “walk through”, the excellent skill and detailed workmanship is incredible! We were amazed at how our three generation home came together beautifully. Three generations, that’s five individual’s dream blending together into one superbly beautiful home.

Mahalo to Chad, Dream Home Builders Staff, and Team for all you have done to make our dream home a reality.
